Review:

"The manual is very well-written and provides the fire service with an all-encompassing textbook that moves a person that is interested in the fire service to someone that is proficient with the knowledge and skills to become a firefighter."~Todd W. Haines, Fire Protection Engineer, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, TX

"Material is presented in an easy to read intuitive manner backed up with a lot of photographs and diagrams showing how to do the procedures described. The text not only explains what to do, but why to do it…[and] does a good job of including updated information from the latest standards and technology."~Howard Sykes, Assistant Chief, Lebanon Volunteer Fire Department, Durham, NC
